Sequel



It is a wrap
He roared
The tone of his voice
Echoed

The ending unfair
When wished upon a star
May it have been 
Different

Now the director dear
Writing a sequel
When long it was clear
There was nothing else

The same actors
A similar decor
And the question burns
Is this setting worth revisiting

Hear the doubt
The first installment
Known to be difficult 
To top

There is a twist
He roars
The tone of his voice
Echoes

The resolution incomplete
My curiosity wins
Convince me
Let us shoot the rest of the story.

Drunk



I got drunk on life
This time, like every time
The old trick works on me
I am just happy enough
Until I have had one too many

Then everything is buzzing
Fuzzy thoughts and accurate feelings

I carry on
As if my gut still permits it
Before promising, I learned my lesson
From overindulging.

This time, I will be more vigilant
Life tastes delicious;
But I should sip gently
Unless it is yet another hungover
From decisions I could regret long after

Then everything is buzzing
Accurate thoughts and fuzzy feelings

Drink moderately, or else I will be
Easily intoxicated
On this plethora of life experience
This time, I shall only get a little tipsy.
